My 3rd boy is due in October...
Both my husband and I like George. We have a Jack and a William already.

However... I can't shake off the name Coby.
My husband isn't keen... he thinks it's 'out there'.

Is it!? confused

Jacob and coby as a nickname could work if he doesnt like Coby by itself x

Sophronia Fri 02-Jun-17 20:43:54

I would suggest Jacob with Coby for short, but you already have a Jack which might be too similar.

I like it, it's unusual but reminds me of the football player Cobi Jones.

Surprised no-one has suggested 'Corbyn'. Nickname Coby. Very relevant for the times. grin

My friend has a Kobe.

I like Coby. I don't think it's too out there.

I like Jacob with nn Coby.

❤️ Koby.
Go for it OP, why not.

I know a Colby which could be an alternative?

I know a coby. He is adorable.

Kobe beef - that's what I think of.

I like it although seems a bit different to your other boys and you may get asked if you mean Cody but it's a cute name

countycouncil Fri 02-Jun-17 21:53:57

I like it but it definitely deviates from the theme you have going with your other boys. I like Cody too.

olympicsrock Fri 02-Jun-17 21:56:11

I know a Kobi who is a 13 year old boy

olympicsrock Fri 02-Jun-17 21:56:41

Yes it is a bit out there though

Tommy Fri 02-Jun-17 21:57:03

I know a Coby - 40 yea old woman. Definitely a girl's name in my book

MinnowAndTheBear Fri 02-Jun-17 21:59:52

It will be forever misheard as Toby

blahthisistoohard Fri 02-Jun-17 22:55:08

Coby doesn't 'fit' very well with your other boys names. Toby might be a better option?

oldestmumaintheworld Fri 02-Jun-17 23:01:24

Its not just 'out there' it's ridiculous. Please don't be one of those parents, unless you live in Tennessee of course, in which case it's fine.

thisismadness77 Fri 02-Jun-17 23:02:54

I knew a Jacob Toby 'Coby'

TesticlesInTheBlender Sat 03-Jun-17 05:58:55

It really doesn't fit with your other more traditional name. Stick with George.

Joeybee Sat 03-Jun-17 11:24:18

I prefer George. However I think Coby is fine. It isn't too out there. In Australia it's a pretty popular name, so maybe that's why I don't think it's 'out there'.

FizzyGreenWater Sat 03-Jun-17 12:58:03

Not very keen, I think you'll have folk equally thinking you mean Toby or Cody... It's also just a bit meh really! Not much to it. Not a brilliant sound and a bit made-uppy.

I think poor Coby will feel a bit short-changed next to William and Jack!

Jack, William and Jonathan (Joby).
